I just visited my doctor on Monday for a checkup. I found out that I had gained 9 more lbs. I was not happy with myself and needless to say neither was my doctor. It seems that no matter how hard I try I can not loose. I can do low carb for months and loose maybe 1lb if I'm lucky. I'm just very upset with myself right now. Doc says that it's not all together my meds that cause the weight gain. He may be right. I'm guilty of eating things that aren't the best for me. Who's not? So, after a heart to heart talk I agreed to go see a weight loss surgeon. I am just sick and tired of being sick and tired. I know that weight loss surgery is not a panacea. I am not looking for the surgery to cure me. I am willing to do my part after the surgery if I do decide to have it.
It is getting to the point where I don't move around so good any more. I can't walk through the house without being slightly out of breath. Going up and down the steps of our new house is a chore for me. I've had back problems from arthritis for years. Now I am also having problems with my knees as of this week. I am so depressed about the way the weight is affecting me that I can cry at the drop of a hat.
I'm not asking for sympathy, but I am asking for your prayers that The Almighty will help me to make the right decision for myself and those that love me.
Thanks DC family!
